If you are looking for a story, or rather, a character, with a distinctive voice, this is definitely one of them. Wonderfully snarky and refreshingly direct, the spoilt 39th century elf certainly doesn’t mince words when he unexpectedly finds himself trapped in the past. The idea of a bratty ‘visitor from the future’ whose biggest worry is suddenly having to go without life’s little luxuries is very funny, and I found the way the author tells the story highly entertaining.

Fabion is not just an e

Reviewed on Hearts On Fire...

Let me preface this review by saying that the publisher sent a copy to Hearts On Fire to be read and reviewed. The world in the thirty-ninth century is a polluted mess. Elves and humans inhabit the planet in small numbers with elves protected by law. Fabion is a self-centered super model who think that the world pretty much revolves around him. He has always fantasized about the great King Henda. The court mage, Matradorien appears o
Ayanna absolutely bat-shit crazy. It's completely fucking ridiculous, but it's got that "so wrong it's right" sort of thing going on. The author completely commits to it, and so while Fabion really is a spoiled bratty bitch, I almost can't find it in myself to hate him. He's got those glimmers or something deeper that kind of prevent you from hating him completely right off the bat.

There were soulful moments in which, while you could still feel now-Fabion's inane personality, the inanity didn
It was really odd and I had lots of WTF and WTH did he say moments. The speech reminded me a bit of Bill and Ted!(yes I am aging myself I know)

Funny light-hearted story

First published at MM Good Book Reviews

Fabion lives in the thirty-ninth century. The world is a foul place, with toxic seas, smoggy air and a dying land. The elves are a protected species. Fabion lives the life of a supermodel that is dragged kicking and screaming to the nineteenth century to help save the planet and the Elf King Henda.

Well. Damn, this is a funny, chuckle worthy, giggle making story, which was a pure jo
I want to start this review with a question: have you even read a comedy fantasy book? I will give you an example. In sci-fi, if you want to read a wonderful story and laugh our ass off you MUST read Douglas Adams books! In fantasy... there are many... and in a genre as male-male fantasy? I dare to say it's not just rare, but my first time. So yeah, the first time is hard to forget... and what a unforgettable first time!

The plot
In the future, thirty nigh century, Earth is a polluted pitch. The
Funny at times, a bit too much most of the way, well-developed characters and an interesting story don't make it good enough to surpass 3 stars. At least, not for me.
I’ve read several books by Ms. Garcia and I have really loved every one. Ms. Garcia really has a knack for writing rich and unique heroes that really capture my imagination. Honestly, out of all of her books, I love her fantasy themed romances. Whether it’s an elf or some other mystical characters she really captures their bratty, diva-ish and highly loveable essence that I’ve always found addictively fascinating.

Where do I begin? Oh…yes…Fabion. Spoiled, self-centered, vain, bratty, gorgeous Fab

I tried to read this a few times but I quit for good after I couldn't force myself to continue any further.
Fabulous Fabion.
That's all there is to it. =3
I had a bit of trouble hard time reading this one. Main problem: Fabian the most *cough* amazing / *cough* handsome elf. And boy does he act like it! I've never in my life read about someone so vain / spoiled / self-centered. Who apparently can't say one sentence without using the f-word. I'm certainly not prudish, but to read it in every sentence was a bit much. And nobody takes action to let him see his errors! They are too enthralled with his "amazing" beauty and personality....

At more than 400 pages, I almost skipped this one due to the involvement it would take me to read it… and it would have been a big mistake. Even if fantasy is not exactly my cup of tea, I plenty enjoyed this funny romp tale: Fabion is a XXXIX century elf who makes his living as model; he is uber-hot and in that century elves are a rare breed looked upon by filthy human as odd creatures with an alluring appeal. Modern time is a polluted world, in which evil elves manages all the money, and poor h ...more
Gosh, this book! It's like a teenage energizer bunny with their sugar levels cranked up to 12. The book is Fabion-powered, and what an energy source! He's irreverent and sassy to the point of being irritating, and more often than not he IS standing on that fine line between hilarious and hair-tearing-ly annoying.

Good thing he fell on the funny side of things for me. Fabion is self-centered and gloriously self-absorbed, constantly describing himself as the 'most beautiful elf in the world' with '
This was a very fun and light read. At the beginning it pissed me off what a sex maniac and flirt Fabion was. He kept imagining himself having sex with everyone he meets while knowing he and Henda were totally I love. He flashes everyone his naked perfect body knowing they are aroused and teases them mercilessly. He even kisses Henda's best friend and flashes his drooling twin boys several times.

As the story progressed the dialogue had me in stitches. The ancient elves now know slang and hand g
This was actually quite a disappointment for me cause I was really eager to read this book. I think the plot is great, and see how some people would find it funny. My problem was I COULDNT read more than a few chapters cause i couldnt stand the slang, it just pissed me off..... :( I'm actually quite sad because i'm sure if i could get through that it would be a great book

Wow, Fabion is a brat, but he's a brash, fun brat. If I was stuck in a car with him I might need to throw him in the trunk, but as a read he's hilarious. I really loved the supporting characters, especially Mattie. Henda seemed a little too perfect and forgiving, but his calm was a nice foil to Fabion. I would love to see more in this weird Elf-filled world.
3.5 stars but I just can't give it a 4

I had a WTF moment at the beginning and almost DNF after the first few chapters...but I am curious about Fabion's motormouth and decide to continue reading...guess I am glad I did...though I still have that WTF ending.

If I was judging this book only by the story line, I would have given it 4 stars. But the "futuristic" slang - more appropriate for a stoned wanna be surfer - is so painful to get through, that the pleasure of reading the story is shot to hell.
A little too happy for my taste and while i enjoyed the slang at first it soon became too repetitive and juvenile.
Loved it. it was like Zoolander met fantasy and you get this wonderful mix. Hope the author does more in this world.

Wow! Been awhile since I just laughed my Mondo butt off!!!! Than you S.A.!!!!
3.5 fun
Nice light snarkalicious read. The slang is mondo hilarious though taxing at times. It is a kicky little elf/time travel story that provides a somewhat different type of m/m read than I am used to. Sorta wish it was a series.
Don't take it too seriously. Meant as a fun romp, An Elf for All Centuries is a lovely read that also shows that things aren't always what they seem.

Thirty years ago, I started writing m/m romance. My writing remained a secret lest my friends thought me a freak. Writing about men inserting tab A into slot B didn’t seem the norm for a female teenager. Reading Gordon Merrick, John Rechy and Larry Kramer helped me fill in informational gaps. Yes, I read these books in my bedroom.

As the years progressed and I discovered my sexual path, I still wro
